Products settings

You can find settings for child products by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Add-Ons > Products.

Include variations as child products

If you’re using the ‘Products’ field, you might want to include variations as child products, not just simple products.

To do so, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Add-Ons and select the ‘Include variations as child products’ option:

Display variant name without SKU in child product

By default, when using variations as child products, product names include the SKU. If you’d like the name without the SKU, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Add-Ons > Products and enable ‘Exclude SKUs from child variants’

Hide child or parent products in the cart, order or email

If you’d like to hide child products in the cart, order page and emails, you can go to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Add-Ons and select the following two options:

  • Hide child products in the cart
  • Hide child products in the order

This will also ensure that the count of products in the mini cart is updated.

Hide parent products in the cart, order and email

If you’d like to hide parent products instead, just check the following options

  • Hide parent products in the cart
  • Hide parent products in the order

Multiply child product quantities by the product quantity

If you would like to multiply the quantity of child products by the main product quantity:

  • Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Product Add-Ons > Products
  • Set ‘Multiply independent quantities’

Redirect hidden products

You can ensure that child products are not purchasable independently by setting them as ‘Hidden’ then checking the option to ‘Redirect hidden products’.

Display child product information in a lightbox

You can display additional information about child products when a user clicks the child product title. This will display the product title, thumbnail and short description in a lightbox.

To enable this, check the option to ‘Enable QuickView for child products’.

Note that this only works with ‘Checkboxes’, ‘Column’ and ‘Radio’ layouts.
